Episode Narrative An upper level storm system pushed southeast out of Canada and through the Northern and Central Plains, accompanied by a strong surface cold front passage. Behind this front, a stout band of snow developed across portions of south central Nebraska, driven by an area of increased middle level frontogenetical forcing. This snow initially developed during the afternoon and early evening hours on the 9th in northwest Nebraska, before spreading into south central Nebraska during the late evening and overnight hours, and tapered off to an end by noon on the 10th. Accumulating snowfall was confined to areas generally along and north of Highway 6, with the heaviest amounts along and north of Highway 92 and west of Highway 281. The highest totals ranged from 6 to 14 inches, with the heaviest snow falling in a narrow band across Sherman, Valley, and Howard Counties. Further east across Nance, Merrick, and Polk Counties, snow accumulations were generally in the 5 to 8 inch range, and areas south of Highway 92 saw anywhere from a trace to 4 inches of snow. The primary impact from this event was that farmers were once again delayed from harvesting crops in what had already been a late harvest season for many areas.
